During the NCAA Tournament selection show on CBS on Sunday night, six Big 12 schools made the tournament. Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, TCU, Texas and Texas Tech will represent the Big 12 during March Madness.

Big 12 Seedings:

Kansas – No. 1 / Midwest

Baylor – No. 1 / East

Texas Tech – No. 3 / West

Texas – No. 6 / East

TCU – No. 9 / South

Iowa State – No. 11 / Midwest

Kansas will face the winner of Texas Southern and Texas A&M-CC in the first round of the tournament. The Jayhawks won the Big 12 Conference Tournament in Kansas City over the weekend. Baylor will face No. 16 seed Norfolk State. The Bears won the Big 12 Co-Regular Season Title. Texas Tech will play No. 14 seed Montana State. Texas will face the ACC Conference Tournament Champions Virginia Tech. TCU will play No. 8 seed Seton Hall. Iowa State will face No. 6 seed LSU.

The four Big 12 schools to miss out on the big dance are Oklahoma, Kansas State, West Virginia and Oklahoma State. The Sooners had a great week in Kansas City, defeating Baylor and almost upsetting Texas Tech in the semifinals. Kansas State lost to WVU in the first round of the tournament and then head coach Bruce Weber stepped down from the program. Oklahoma State was ineligible for the tournament this season after being punished for recruiting infractions from 2016 that were not under current head coach Mike Boynton.
